There is very much bad information out there regarding ISBU shipping container construction.

The formal ISBA organization that you see today is relatively new. The people involved in it's
formation were a simple group of "grass roots" individuals who saw the potential of shipping
container technology; it's valuable strength and recyclability but found no organized group
or information resources for ISBU shipping container construction.

Finally the ISBA organization was officially formed in early 2007 to coordinate the explosion of
interest in Container Homes, Container Offices, Emergency Housing, Safe Rooms and Storage
units by interested American consumers, designers, building contractors and businessmen. 
By late 2007 it's support and membership was also surging globally.

The principal Founder of the ISBA is a third generation American businessman who owns
an international consulting business with offices in China and Hong Kong. These cities are
the point of origin for most of the surplus of nearly 700,000 shipping containers sitting idle in 
the U.S. in 2006, not including the containers sitting in other countries of the world.

By June 2008 the number of surplus shipping containers sitting in the U.S. and other countries
of the world was near zero.

Millions of shipping containers arrive in the U.S. yearly from China, but few ever return.

Many people are very interested in the recyclable ISBU construction for many years, however
the ISBU Association is the only organization to finally research, organize, promote and educate
on the use and benefits of ISBU shipping container construction.

There are many U.S. and European companies and individuals who have been key players 
in the growth and interest of ISBU architecture and housing development.  ISBU-INFO.org is an 
attempt to promote, educate and highlight all these important advancements.

Not Just Recycling
Our purpose is not simply to reduce the stores of shipping containers globally, but to also 
promote the use of ISBU modules as the safest, strongest, and most flexible, recyclable and
sustainable construction and storage product available.

Financial Benefits in 2008
As the US & International housing and economy was turning down fast, the interest in ISBU
housing, including ISBU Integrated housing and storage units was rising even faster.  

Outlook in 2010
Since January 2009 the interest and growth of ISBU technology and ISBA memberships has
grown more than 300 % over 2008.  The interest in Eco-Green construction is a certain trend;
the interest in the ISBU technology is possibly the fastest growing Eco-Green trend.

In 2010 the interest and growth remain very steady and we are double the size from 2009.

We urge you to Join the ISBU Association and learn how you can benefit from ISBU products
and it's Eco-Green related technologies.
